Addressing Health Disparities: A Community-Based Approach

Tuesday, December 13 | 1:15 PM - 2:00 PM | FREE Webinar

Presented by: Dan LaVallee, Senior Director, UPMC's Center for Social Impact

Offered in Partnership with: UPMCproud Premier Sponsor of the 2022 Collaborative Conference

Health disparities have many dimensions, including race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and geography, originating from long-standing inequalities. Efforts to address disparities must be part of a broader endeavor to transform health care. As we all continue building this health care "plane", improving the quality of care delivered to the population is an essential step towards thriving, resilient communities.


During this session, Dan LaVallee, UPMC Health Plan's Senior Director of Social Impact, will:

  • Define the key pillars of addressing health disparities
  • Examine the relationships between health disparities, social determinants of health (SDOH), and health outcomes
  • Share UPMC Health Plan’s efforts to reduce health care disparities


This workshop is being offered free of charge by our friends at UPMC, proud sponsors of the 2022 Collaborative Conference. You do not need to have attended the conference in order to attend this workshop, but we invite you to learn more about the fun we had at Building the Plane While Flying It here.

About the 2022 Collaborative Conference:

‚Äč Over the last two weeks in October, conference partners Alliance for Nonprofit Resources (ANR), the Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP), PANO, and the Department of Public Administration at Villanova University hosted their first-ever hybrid conference experience!


With this year’s theme of Building the Plane While Flying It, we unpacked how we've all been building various planes while flying them - from wearing extra hats while recruiting for open positions to piloting new programs while simultaneously trying to fund them, and everything in between. We did this through two keynotes, 22 workshops, some in-person, networking, and more. Learn more here and we hope to see you there next year (in person, fingers crossed)!
